Community Events Quick Guide

Book Us For Your Community or Park Events


Have you got the task to organise a spring, summer or community event for your organisation? Are you on the committee to make your event a success? Maybe you are a scouts leader looking to entertain your troops. You could be a friends of the parks, a community leader, a church leader, a charity steward or a local community centre, all looking for something unique and special to book for your event. Inside or outside, how about inviting us along to your special event soon!

Part and Parcel of the Community

As part of our community interest commitment, Animal Days Out provide many organisations serving the community with fun, interactive and educational animal encounters, nature and outdoor activities. As we provide this service through our community interest company it allows us to subsidise and discount the price of our services ensuring that we can deliver an opportunity for activities and encounters to those people that will really benefit from it.

If you want something a little bit different for your activity days, then our encounters are great entertainment, educational and of course fun!

Fit Your Budget

Our prices are subsidised substantially compared to our private and corporate services. We offer further discounts for organisations who book frequently and with multiple locations wishing to roll out a number of encounters across their group.

Who Can Benefit?

Amongst the many organisation that have booked us, many have reported that Animal Days Out were a major factor in the success of their event. We are certainly popular. You only have to look at the amount of people we attract at events around our tables. As our encounters and activities attract a wide ranging demographic of people, both young and old, we can fit and adapt to almost any scenario. If you have the task of organising any of the following events, talk to us about how we can help.

Working With The Experts 

Our clients have included the London Boroughs of Bromley, Lewisham, Bexley and Greenwich. We have entertained over 100 Scouts and Guides. We have supported Wide Horizons Trust, Libraries, Friends of the Parks, Fun Palace, Major and Local Festivals, Kent County Council, Cbeebies, Youth Support Programmes, BETRA, Volunteer Organisations, Local Churches, Local Children's Centres, Thames21 and many other community organisations over the last three years. 

Our Rates

Our basic rates vary depending on the type of community event. Most of our community encounters require at least two hours and park events sometimes as many as 4 hours. We aim to subsidise our normal private rates where we can. After all, the money we receive goes straight back into the not for profit community company allowing us to provide more encounters to those that need it most.

If your budgets are tight, then we can come to an arrangement where by we can provide a reduced cost.

Unfortunately, we can not offer Free of Charge appearances at events any longer as our overheads with transport, animals and staff have grown as we have grown. If budgets are tight we would rather come to an affordable agreement.

What Do You Get?ADO at Norman Park - Bromley

You will certainly get your money's worth when booking ADO. For most open events we will bring a minimum of 10-12 animals along. In most cases we bring along much more, especially for park events, school fetes and fairs. For these events we have a whole selection of mini-beasts, lizards, snakes and small mammals like guinea pigs, rabbits and chinchillas for example.

We do insist on having an information and selling stall alongside our animal zone. To keep our prices reasonable and affordable we would like to opportunity for your visitors to get an insight into some of other services and encounters.

Please note all pricing includes VAT at 20% - Pricing valid until September 2017
